After a long conversation with Mustapha Mond, John even forces himself to throw up in order to purge himself of civilization, explaining that “It poisoned me.” John does not see himself as a part of society like Lenina does; in fact, because he has always been treated and considered as an outsider, John is the very embodiment of individualism and natural instinct. John is all the more dangerous because of his refusal to accept the World State’s society and conform to their societal
This displays the criminal world that we live in. Moreover, when the Misfit and the two men shoot the whole family in the woods, it illustrates the sinister and cruel world that needs saving. The violent car crash that causes the family to encounter the Misfit in the first place adds to the violent display that O’Connor creates of the world. O’Connor uses the violence in the story to shock the readers into self-awareness (Larson 1). She uses this self-awareness to bring to light the religious theme of redemption and grace for the corrupted.
He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21). This shows that there was a strong motive as to why Adnan killed Hae. This proves that Adnan was the one who killed her. Jay and Adnan both committed a serious crime. Adnan killed Hae with the help from
Jack’s madness and cruelty affected the other boys’ minds and caused them to think that it is okay to participate in atrocious activities. For example, Jack and the boys on many occasions have chanted about killing and have reenacted their hunting adventures. One time they went as far as hurting a kid with the
Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions. The mockingbird was symbolic of Tom’s true, pure heart, and his death was because of nothing but the inequities within society. Mr. Ewell’s sin caused sorrow and horror in Scout’s life, but it also lead to her realization that discrimination was wrong, something that Atticus wished for her to know all along. Further along in the story, Scout’s growth is proved when Atticus suggests sending Boo Radley to trial for killing Bob Ewell. Scout says, “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (276).
In a legal standpoint George Milton would be guilty of the murder of Lennie Small. George Milton is guilty for what Lennie Small went through, George Milton verbally and mentally bullied Lennie Small throughout the book Of Mice and Men and George Milton shot Lennie Small in the back of the head with a lugger which was stolen. Which brings me to my first point on how George Milton is guilty of verbally and mentally bullying Lennie Small. The reasoning behind my accusation, Is George Milton always would tell Lennie Small how dumb and retarded Lennie Small was. Quoting out of the book Of Mice and Men Chapter 3 ; pg.
He was blind to his own hubris and let all of these terrible things happen. He started out the play being strong about what he believed in and didn’t let anyone, even Teiresias, tell him that he was making the wrong decisions. In the end, Creon’s fate turned on him and he became the epitome of humiliation and regret. I feared Creon because he was a ruthless leader who let his own self kill three people. He might not have physically killed them, but his actions did.
Tom Buchanan’s character is the most parasitical one in the book. He is much like a leech, hurting others for his own benefit. When Wilson goes to Tom to find out who the owner of the yellow car is, he “told him the truth” knowing very well the deranged state Wilson was in (9). Tom did this because he knew Wilson “was crazy enough to kill [him] if [he] hadn’t told him who owned the car”
In the beginning, Macbeth felt a deep guilt about planning to kill King Duncan. Once he did kill him, though, his conscious slowly started ebbing away. Within a short time, he was killing and manipulating many people; he even went as far as to kill the innocent wife and children of a man whom he considered his enemy. What started out as a doubt acted upon became a quick, almost unstoppable path of destruction. Every aspect of who he was, his conscious, was covered by the dark shadow cast by the corrupting sin.
From anything like Legal consequences to the drug user putting their addiction before their family. This relates to how Grandel ruined families by killing loved ones. Another angle of devastation is the physical and mental effects it can have on a person who abuses drugs. It can affect your overall health, certain brain functions and sometimes even cause death. This shows even more closely how similar it is to the horrifying monster Grendel, “Killing as often as he could, coming alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg.26, line 80-81); both monsters have the same goal.
